We defend the second classic
Marxism-Leninism against revisionism

If we Stalinist-Hoxhaists celebrate the 190th day of Birth of Friedrich Engels, we celebrate the birthday of one of our 5 classics of Marxism-Leninism. Thereby, we differ fundamentally from all so-called "Marxists." Why?
For us, the teachings of Frederick Engels are integral part of the proletarian ideology, which was created - respectively further developed - by Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Enver Hoxha . The teachings of Friedrich Engels may never be regarded and applied, separately from all other 4 classics of Marxism-Leninism. Only by this integration the teachings of Friedrich Engels are powerful, invincible and immortal.
What does Marxism consist of ? This can be expressed in a single formula:
Marxism = the jointly created doctrines of Marx + Engels.
They form a coherent, indivisible whole, are a result of the life work of two friends, Marx and Engels. Lenin speaks about this friendship:
"The European proletariat may say that its science has been created by two scholars and fighters , whose ratio outshines the most touching legends of the ancients about human friendship." "One cannot understand and propagate Marxism - without recourse on the complete works of Engels.(Lenin, Collected Works, Volume 21, page 80).
Stalin defined Marxism as follows:
Marxism is the science of the laws governing the development of nature and society, the science of the revolution of the oppressed and exploited masses, the science of the victory of socialism in all countries, the science of building communist society.
As a science, Marxism cannot stand still, it develops and is perfected. In its development, Marxism cannot but be enriched by new experience, new knowledge -- consequently some of its formulas and conclusions cannot but change in the course of time, cannot but be replaced by new formulas and conclusions, corresponding to the new historical tusks. Marxism does not recognize invariable conclusions and formulas, obligatory for all epochs and periods. Marxism is the enemy of all dogmatism“ (J. Stalin, "Marxism and Problems of Linguistics“, 1950)
The teachings of Friedrich Engels are not collection of dogmas to memorize. His teachings remained alive until today, and will always remain actual. It is universally applicable, if it is always worked out in correct concordance of the ever-changing local conditions of world events .
In 1934, at the XVII. Congress of the CPSU (B), comrade Stalin pointed to the character of the invincibility of Marxism:
"More than 80 years have passed, since Marxism has come on the scene. During this time, tens and hundreds of bourgeois governments have tried to destroy Marxism. And the result ? The bourgeois governments came and went, Marxism has remained. Moreover: Marxism has achieved that it bore the full victory on one-sixth of the earth " (J. V. Stalin, Problems of Leninism, Moscow, 1947, page 587).
And today we like to add
Marxism will achieve it, that it will become the determinative ideology of the whole planet .
And to prevent precisely this revisionism is still present on the world stage. The teachings of Friedrich Engels will not become globally determinative teachings, if the globalized revisionists of all shades would not have been beaten.
Let us remember the days of the modern revisionists. At that time they tried to take advantage of the teachings of Frederick to fool the world proletariat, the Communist World Movement, the Soviet workers and peoples. The way back to capitalism was sold as "the way towards communism on the basis of the teachings of Marxism-Leninism."
"For" Frederick Engels in words – against Frederick Engels in deeds!
Only the Marxist-Leninist World Movement - with comrade Enver Hoxha at the top - defended the teachings of Frederick Engels against modern revisionism !
And today, only the Stalinist-Hoxhaist World Movement -. with the Comintern (SH) at the top – defends the teachings of Frederick Engels against neo-revisionism ( against anti-revisionism in words and revisionism in deeds).
If you even cut a small part of the teachings of Friedrich Engels off Marxism or places it in contrast to the teachings of Karl Marx, then this is no longer Marxism, but revisionism. Already Frederick Engels and Karl Marx, themselves personally, opposed these attempts of the revisionists. The revisionists speculate that Friedrich Engels, only the "second fiddle" had played and that "because of this", his teachings are allegedly the "weaker" part of Marxism.
Thus, the revisionists attack ostensibly Frederick Engels, because they think they have a walk-over, to combat in particular the teachings of Karl Marx , and Marxism in general. So to speak, the revisionists have tried from the beginning, "playing off" the teachings of Friedrich Engels against the teachings of Karl Marx. They continued their attempts at the time of Leninism, Stalinism, Hoxhaism. And they still try to construct "contradictions" between the teachings of Frederick Engels and Marxism-Leninism.
Just as the revisionists pit Marx against Engels, they try also to pit Marxism against Leninism, Leninism against Stalinism, and Stalinism against Hoxhaism.
For example, there are some people who blame comrade Enver Hoxha, for having drawn upon the theory of Lenin and Stalin but not upon Marx and Engels.
If we have a look at ( for example in Germany) the so called "190 - anniversary celebrations" of the various bourgeois and revisionist institutes of "Marx and Engels researchers", then they present themselves sanctimoniously as "the strict defenders the pure Science of Frederick Engels". Against whom ? Of course against us Marxist-Leninists ! Admittedly, there are some valuable works by these "researchers", which we would not deny to study earnestly, but this cannot hide the fact their true purpose - to decompose Marxism- Leninism. In other words
As long as the teachings of Friedrich Engels as "historical criticism" of the prevailing capitalist relations of the 19 Century will be understood, they are for the bourgeoisie "acceptable".
In the hands of the bourgeoisie the teachings of Friedrich Engels are harmless, but if they get into the hands of the proletariat, if the proletariat establishes its dictatorship over the bourgeoisie by means of the teachings of Friedrich Engels, then ... then the revisionist lackeys were responsible for this "failure". The bourgeois-revisionist intelligentsia fulfills the infamous Order of the bourgeoisie to take over everything from Friedrich Engels, what is for her benefit and, to revise everything what does harm.
Leninism is the further development of Marxism, which is why we speak about the proletarian world ideology of Marxism-Leninism.
Lenin, Stalin and Enver Hoxha based their teachings exclusively and completely on the teachings of Marxism. They all developed their teachings not without the fire of their struggle against the falsifiers of Marx and Engels. Without defending and further developing Marxism, one can not defend and further develop Leninism, Stalinism and Hoxhaism. And that is valid also in the opposite direction.
"Stalinism-Hoxhaism is the further development of Marxism-Leninism" (W. Eggers).
Whoever separates Stalinism-Hoxhaism from Marxism-Leninism, or whoever antagonizes both , consequently can not be a true defender of the teachings of Frederick Engels. Only the true defenders of the 5 classics of Marxism-Leninism, can also really defend a single classic. So when we celebrate today Friedrich Engels' birthday, then we defend him as one of five classics of Marxism-Leninism. The ideological battles around Friedrich Engels will not stop until the classless society is created.
For the Communist International (Stalinist - Hoxhaists)
the teachings of Marx and Engels contain
four main ideas:
The first main idea:
Marx and Engels revealed the laws governing the development of nature and society in general, and that of development of capitalist society in particular.
The first main idea is thus the law of the inevitability of the overthrow of capitalism.
We derive from the inevitability of the development of the globalization of capitalism, the inevitability of the globalized overthrow and downfall of capitalism.
The inevitability of the world revolutionary transformation of global capitalism in the globalized socialism corresponds to the effective force of the universal law of socialism.
Humanity frees itself, and also nature, by means of the world revolution.
Today, the Stalinist-Hoxhaists have to regard and substantiate Marxist laws of nature and society in globalized dimensions and categories.
The unity of the world does not consist in its being, but in its materiality ( Engels ).
It follows that all phenomena of nature and society - both in a whole as well as in their individual parts - are in relation to an overall world-context, that they interact and are thereby in perpetual motion, globally .
We Stalinist-Hoxhaists must thoroughly study the general laws of nature and society which were discovered by Marx and Engels. They pave us the way for the world revolution if we receive more knowledge from their global modes of functioning and forms. Thus we have to explain scientifically the lwas of globalized capitalism, on the basis of Marxism-Leninism.
We also want to know more
about the global demensions of the future communist society and
therefore we have particularly to study the communist ideas of
Frederick Engels. Frederick Engels emphasized in "The
Origin of the Family, Private Property and the State"
the original characteristics of an specific social formation which
existed long before the development of class-relations. Engels
the social equality which is based upon socialised property , including equality of the sexes;
Engels teaches: The condition for social equality is the duty of the members of society to participate actively in social production and reproduction. In this way the society regains the control over its production which was abolished by the antagonistic class society ... [ "based on the now regained immense control of nature by man and by the possibility of forming the free association" (Engels, MEW, Volume 21, page 110); German edition]. ,
no class-division of society and not faced by an alienating state authority ;
all members of society take part in the decision of social affairs;
the concern of society for the welfare of their members;
personal dignity and personal development (see Friedrich Engels, MEW, Volume 21, page 95 / 96, page 158, 168 and 172/173; German edition).
The second main idea:
The second main idea of Marx and Engels is: "Workers of the world - unite!"
"Once the working class comes to political power, all pleas for national hatred are removed . Because: the working class is international according to its innermost nature. "(Friedrich Engels, MEW, Volume 22, page 403; German edition).
The proletarian internationalism of Marx and Engels teaches that the proletarians of all countries form an international common class. The world-proletarian army is united by global interests ( simultaneously different interests in individual countries still exist).
Proletarian Internationalism presupposes the consciousness of the worker that his total global interests are higher than his individual interests in the country.
The world proletariat is the only internationalistic class, which is capable to overthrow the globalized world imperialism by means of its organized international class-solidarity.
If the great imperialist powers dominate through their political centralization of the world, the workers dominate these centers of the imperialist powers in moments of revolutionary earthquakes.
The world-proletariat demands the entire world-capital to restrain. But it initially gains the global ground for its revolutionary struggle for its liberation, and thus by no means the liberation itself.
The relations of production in capitalist countries are dependent of the foreign trade of these countries, dependent by their position on the world market and thus subjected to the laws of the world market.
How can the proletariat of an individual capitalist country break these global laws? These laws of the world market can only be broken by the world revolution.
The development of globalized industrial proletariat is actually due to the development of globalized industrial bourgeoisie.
Under the globalized world domination of capitalism, the world-proletariat only develops its own broad global existence, by which its revolution can globalize. The world-proletariat creates initially global means of production, which will be transformed into means of world revolutionary liberation.
The world domination of capital eradicates at first the material roots of national capitalism and clears the way for a world-terrain on which alone is a world proletarian revolution possible.
The world revolution is the locomotive of world history.
The hegemony of the world proletariat results objectively from its dominant position in the globalized production. If the world proletariat is conscious about the meaning of this position, then the fight for world-hegemony is only a matter of time.
The hegemony of the proletariat, the dictatorship of the proletariat, is so objectively resulting from the leading role in the mode of production of world capitalism, as well as subjectively from the invincible, tightly organized, internationalist class-solidarity.
The world dictatorship of the proletariat is based on the highest realization of Marx' and Engels' ideas of proletarian internationalism.
The epoch of world-socialism is the epoch of further advanced proletarian internationalism. The highest type of proletarian internationalism is determined by its political world power.
The aim of proletarian internationalism is the achievement of a classless world society of world communism.
The third main idea:
The third main idea is the doctrine of Marx and Engels on the Communist Party in general and the First International and the starting time of the Second International in particular.
"Marx and Engels defined in broad outline, the party as a vanguard of the proletariat without which the proletariat can neither gain political power, nor transform the capitalist society" (J. V. Stalin, „Problems of Leninism ").
The Manifesto of the Communist party, written by Marx and Engels, sets the basic framework for every Communist in general and for the Communist International (SH) in particular.
Comintern (SH) defends the First International of Marx and Engels
and the beginning of the Second International in which Frederick
Engels and Vladimir I. Lenin represented the realization of the
communist ideals of the world-proletarian, socialist revolution.
Marx and Engels were the vanguard of the world proletariat, by equipping it with revolutionary ideology, with knowledge of the laws of the international labor movement, with the knowledge and laws of the revolution. Marx and Engels created a Communist League in their own country, supported the building of Communist organisations in other countries and founded the First International as the umbrella organization of the proletarians of all countries, and last not least: they sparked the red internationalist torch of the Paris Commune.
The world proletariat, in
which the revolutionary interests of world society are reflected and
concentrated, once it arises, finds immediately in its own world
situation, the content and material of its revolutionary activity:
to crush and suppress the enemy of international capital; to take measures which are given by the immediate needs of the struggle; the global consequences of his own actions propels the world-proletariat forward. However:
The world proletariat itself does not inquire theoretical investigations over its own task.It is the Communist International, which enables theoretically the world proletariat to carry out the victory of the world revolution - thus deliberately, systematically as much as possible and on schedule.
Only the Communist International can handle the conflicts of the modern world bourgeoisie scientific and coolly and without patronizing the bourgeois-revisionist world. We treat the capitalist world, as if it has already historically passed, anatomically, as if the capitalist world would already be a corpses. (Freely after Friedrich Engels, "The Prussian Military Question and the German Workers' Party, Introduction, 1865)
Marx and Engels recognized the International, as the organisation of the „alliance of brotherhood which strengthens the proletarians of all countries in their fight and which accelerates the beginning of the new world" (Frederick Engels, MEW, Volume 21, page 544; German edition).
The fourth main idea:
Marx and Engels are our
first teachers in our struggle against revisionism ! ! !
The struggle against anarchism, which was led by the first international and the fight against right opportunism, which was conducted later in the Second International, are excellent and instructive examples for today's battle of the Comintern (SH) against any deviation from the teachings of the 5 classics of Marxism-Leninism. So, the fourth main theme is the struggle against opportunism - that time against the rise of "pseudo-Marxism."
We want to highlight just
one example in particular - the "Anti-Duhring" by Friedrich
The "Anti-Duhring provided us Marxist-Leninists in the fight against the modern revisionists great service. But currently, we have to learn how to use the "Anti-Duhring“ in the fight against Maoism, which replaces the Marxist dialectic of Friedrich Engels by eclecticism and sophistry.
We continue the path of Friedrich Engels !
On the 190th Birthday of Friedrich Engels we published some of his writings in
We have also published in
